  • During the 70s there were a fair amount of Genta influenced designs, some worked well and some didn't, but we can't deny his outstanding contribution to watch design. Here we have a superb and true to design example of 1979 Eterna Oak Kontiki which has the thinnest movement with electronic works at the time.

    This reference 729 1505 41 has some Oysterquartz vibes and also a lot of Royal Oak influences. I has the integrated bracelet which is lovely to wear, and the Eterna signature bearing logo on the flip clasp. It has a very low key but stunning grey "teak" dial which is used on the latest Omega Aqua Terra Seamaster with great effect.

    The case is honest and has not been polished showing light scratches but overall; excellent. The dial and lume is in tact and the watch has just had a fresh battery.

    There is a ton of presence here at 35,5mm excluding the crown.
